description for "Apricot: Prunus armeniaca 'Stark® SweetHeart™'"

With 'Stark® SweetHeart™' not only do you get big, delectable apricots with this tree, you get a second treat of delicious, almond-like kernels from its freestone pits. Ranked #1 for quality in a recent University of California test, the flesh is juicy and firm with a sprightly flavor. Kernels make a great snack and are the perfect substitute in recipes calling for almonds or other nuts. This vigorous apricot usually bears fruit as early as its third year. Ripens in mid-July in Zone 5. U.S. Plant Patent No. 5651. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
